Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time – Story Trailer

Published

 on

“Who Is Sly?”  That’s the question this trailer asks at one point, followed by the question “Are You?” You’ll have to find out early next year, but in the meantime, why not occupy yourself with this story trailer for Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time?

The trailer gives a quick rundown of Sly’s friends Murray and Bentley along with the ever-pursuing Inspector Carmelita Fox, who just won’t get off Sly’s case (even though she is on a case, being an inspector… oh, whatever). Sly has undoubtedly become a legendary figure due to his past adventures, and the trailer plays on the mysterious nature of Sly’s capabilities. Just who or what is he? Nobody really knows, since he’s just so good at his job.

The trailer doesn’t advertise the time-travel hook of the game too much, other than a clever “When Is Sly” moment. It is, however, strikingly faithful to the style of the original games. Check out the trailer below and leave us your thoughts!

Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time will sneak up to retailers on Feb. 5 for PS3 and PS vita. The PS Vita version is included with the PS3 version, so if you own both systems, it’s Christmas come late for you. Stay tuned for more news on the racoon’s upcoming adventure.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
